Physics Colloquium

"Neutron Matter in the Laboratory and in Neutron Stars"

Presented by Joseph Carlson, LANL

Tuesday, January 31, 2012, 3:30 pm — Hamilton Seminar Room, Bldg. 555

Recent years have seen tremendous developments in cold atom experiments and in observations of neutron stars.
These seemingly disjoint advances come together to bring a much better understanding of the zero temperature equation of state of neutron matter. Cold atom experiments are closely related to neutron matter at very low density, while astrophysical observations are giving much greater insight into the equation of state at high density.
I will summarize recent advances in theory and computation as well as experiment and observation in understanding these strongly-correlated environments.
